We extend recently developed schemes for field quantization in absorbing dielectric media with local susceptibilities to dielectric systems described by a nonlocal susceptibility, in order to quantize the electromagnetic field in quantum wells embedded in planar semiconductor microcavities. As an application of the formalism, we analyze the effects of the propagation through a semiconductor microcavity on a continuous-mode squeezed coherent state. In particular, we calculate the varince of the field trasmitted through the microcavity in the case of strong coupling regime for different detection schemes, as a function of the detuning, the exciton-photon coupling and the exciton homogeneous broadening
